Captain Ed Darwin invites you to come aboard the Becky D II for terrific sport fishing in Annapolis this summer. Captain Ed has been offering charter fishing in the waters of the Middle and Upper Chesapeake Bay for more than 40 years, so he knows just where the lunkers are lurking.
About the Becky D II
The Becky D II is a 40-foot diesel powered recreational fishing vessel fully equipped with modern electronics for navigation and communication. The boat features a bunk and a spacious and comfortable cabin that can accommodate fishing parties of up to 6 passengers. It has a Classic Bay build and classic fishing area on its deck. Captain Ed supplies the bait, tackle, and rods at no extra charge. Live bait and chumming costs extra. Guests will need to bring their own food and beverages.
Location and Region
Docked in Annapolis, Maryland, the Becky D II is located in one of the major fishing ports near both the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore areas. Captain Ed is based just about 10 minutes from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge off Route 50 on the western shore. He is near sport fishing fans located in Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. Becky D II is situated close to the richest waters of the Chesapeake Bay, so Captain Ed can bring you to the outstanding fishing grounds after a short cruise.
The Chesapeake Bay’s summer season from June to August means fun fishing with light tackle chumming and live lining for Striped Bass, which are known for their fighting ability. If you like bottom fishing, Croak, Perch, and Spot are waiting for you to lower your bait. Other fish swimming the waters are Rockfish, White Perch, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Flounder, and Sea Trout.
September and October will bring Bluefish as they prepare to migrate. Following them in November are Rockfish breaking the waters as they feed to fatten for winter. This period is the ideal time to use light tackle jigging to catch them. Late November will mean the return of trophy Stripers to the Chesapeake Bay.
